MALI & COTE D'IVOIRE REFUGEE CRISIS

Fine Tribal Gallery is exhausted!! Mali and the surrounding countries experienced one of the worst droughts
in their recent histories. On top of that, civil war broke out in Mali and the Muslim rebels brought much of the
country to it's knees, causing more instability to an already unstable and fragile infrastructure with dwindling
natural resources - like water! Most of the Malians fled North, huge amounts went East into Northern
Burkina Faso, and some came further south. The crisis took many months before the Western news media
picked up the story. The big Aid agencies took quite some time to mobilise into safe positions. We and our
team helped where we could, bringing in aid from Cote D'Ivoire and Burkina using whatever mans were
available. We are now concentrating our efforts back in Cote D'Ivoire.
